Episode Quotes
Meredith: (opening voiceover) As surgeons we are trained to fix what’s broken. The breaking point is our starting line at work. But in our lives the breaking point is a sign of weakness and we’ll do everything we can to avoid it.

Izzie: Hey. Callie's gonna freeze her patient. You wanna go check it out? Hello? Alex? Why are you ignoring me?
Alex: I'm hoping that if I wait long enough, you'll be as annoyed by the sound of your voice as I am and just shut up.
Izzie: Okay. Did I do something?
Alex: You know what you did.
Izzie: NO, I don't. Alex just tell me. What did I do? I thought that--
Alex: Just shut up. I had a bad night, I cried like a girl. I'm over it. You need to get over it, too.

Dani: Is this positioned right?
Cristina: If I'm getting a mammogram. Lower, to the right. Two, what are you doing?
Steve: Dr-Draping so your parts are safe.
Cristina: Get-- Get away from my parts.
Meredith: How are you doing?
Cristina: Please take my films because my interns are idiots.

Meredith: What are you doin'?
Cristina: Eating cereal.
Meredith: I got us a chicken for dinner.
Cristina: Chicken. Seriously?
Meredith: You're not gonna be hungry now.
Cristina: Oh, you're doing it all wrong again, as usual.
Meredith: I'm not. I'm cutting from the mediastinum out.
Cristina: You can't even see the mediastinum without your glasses.
Meredith: Damn it. Where are my glasses?
Cristina: No. Put it down. They're right here. Move.
Meredith: What would I do without you?
Cristina: Starve.

Izzie: Eat the muffin, Mer. Taste the muffin. Remember. The muffin.

Meredith: My patient's dying. I hate when I like them and they're dying.

Cristina: There's no way that guy has been living at an 8. He's a wimp. His 8? My 3. I can take pain.
Meredith: You can't talk to my boyfriend for 10 minutes.
Cristina: Well there's pain and then there's torture.

Dr. Wyatt: Yes. Horrible things do happen. Happiness in the face of all of that? That's not the goal. Feeling the horrible and knowing that you’re not gonna die from those feelings. That’s the point.

Meredith: (closing voiceover) Bones break. Organs burst. Flesh tears. We can sew the flesh, repair the damage, ease the pain. But when life breaks down -- when we break down -- there’s no science. No hard and fast rules. We just have to feel our way through. And to a surgeon there’s nothing worse, and there’s nothing better.



Episode Goofs
Continuity: When Meredith tells Derek that he cannot make her friends move out he sits on the couch with his arms down at his sides. When the camera switches back to him his left arm is draped on the top of the couch.
